1/23/2012 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- Electronic Systems Center Commander Lt. Gen. CR Davis presented his 2012 Commander's Intent during his Jan. 19 'State of ESC' address.

In a period of unprecedented National and DoD fiscal austerity, we must attack our challenges:

o With selflessness
o With a focus on innovation
o With a desire to execute our acquisition mission in a way that provides the greatest mission capability possible for the resources available

We must all do everything possible to make ESC the one place the USAF turns to when it needs a capability in these mission areas

o Command, Control, Communication, Intelligence (C3I) and Networks
o Theater Command and Control
o Battle Management
o Business System domain control and dominance

We must all work as a single enterprise

o The PEO chain will always be the execution channel
o We must work as a single entity to build and implement the architectures, standards and baselines that make domain control effective and seamless
o Center functionals must actively work manpower issues with and across all ESC PEOs to ensure efficient manpower utilization

We must all work with our customers and the Warfighter to shape system requirements into smaller and more executable programs

o We must be brutally honest about cost and schedule risks
o We must work aggressively to build innovative business approaches which field essential capabilities at a faster pace
o We must focus on delivering a capability--not hardware, software, or even a system

During this period of historic change where some will face unprecedented levels of stress, I expect us all to take care of each other

o Be an active and aggressive Wingman
o Actively engage in fitness and enjoyable activities
o Look for opportunities to socialize as a unit and as a team
